  1. Man, is it just me, or have source ports become less stable in general? More mods require the latest dev build or whatnot, and I try to compile those only to get unaligned access crashes, or garbage collection crashes, or segmentation faults. I still cannot get the latest geezy and qz to compile due to.. God only knows?

    It's getting to the point where I cannot do /newstuff reviews (The joy of mapping 2 review is done but I can't get screenshots because the fucking thing crashes when writing a screenshot) and I'm kind of tired of all this.

    We can't have this situation where mods require unstable versions, or latest release versions that don't get bug fixes for months. I can't run the stable version of the port in question because of arch specific fixes not being Incorporated into that release, There are even mods now that require a version of a port I can't even compile because the build system is complete trash on anything but a 32-bit X86 OS. Maybe I should report the bugs, but I'm not about signing up for yet another dumb, slow bug tracker on a crazy version control program (git is too mainstream I guess). And sourceforge, please stop using it. It crawls and barely loads on a supercomputer.

    Modders need to pick the latest stable version of a port and develop for that. Any mod that requires me to dig up a specific port version because the author exploited undocumented behavior to the point of near breakage deserves to meet a trash can.

    I'm not really blaming the port authors, they're unstable for a reason. But modders requiring those builds? Haha nope not reviewing your crap.

      Ideally you wouldn't try to run Doom source ports on a toaster

      I wouldn't call a quad core a toaster, exactly, but it's not an X86, which definitely puts me in lower caste status.

      that and my "buying a gaming PC" days are over considering I don't have a job now.

      Why do you even play mods that require a devbuild?
      Anyway, maybe you could ask someone around here to compile it for you, if you can't do it yourself?

      Did that Randy guy fire you?
      Sad to hear in any case. :[
